Have been here almost every week for a year.Was recommended by a friend and certainly was not disappointed,Both lamb and chicken dishes were extremely well cooked and so tender.Have eaten in many Indian restaurants but this one is far the best.Good service and value too.Certainly worth a try.

The service was outstanding, they couldn't do enough and even took back/re-cooked the main course when I complained, without hesitation. Probably very good by Belfast standards. But I found the food lacking in taste, subtle flavours, and intensity when compared with the best that Manchester, Bradford, Leicester and London has to offer. Would revisit as it may just have been... More

I have been dining at the Archana for years now so it with frustration that I am writing this review. This has always been my favourite Indian restaurant in Belfast but my recent visit was very dissapointing. Having received a gift voucher for the Archana my boyfriend and I visited for dinner but as the cost of our meal was... More

I ordered a takeaway via Deliveroo last night. Veg dumplings to start, main course King Prawn Tikka Massala and Bombay Alu. They chucked in a free poppadum, which I hadn't ordered, which was nice (but I didn't eat it anyway). The Bombay Alu and starters were very tasty, albeit a bit on the oily side. The KPTM was probably the... More

Fabulous food for all 5 of us. I had the mixed dish and the lamb was melt in the mouth! My daughter had Korma and said it was the best she had ever had! My friend also had a Lamb Curry and said it was lovely! Highly recommended!

Been here a few times and keep going back. Sometimes bring colleagues who are visiting Belfast on business and we've always been very happy with the food and service. Was there again last Tuesday using Tastecard (be sure to mention when booking), which made the meal very reasonable. Thank you!

Hands down Belfasts Best Indian Restaurant!! Service was fantastic, met the lovely owner and his lovely son - so great to see such a family establishment still exists after all these years! Food was exquisite, lots of fabulous options. Authentic and truly tasty! Cannot wait to come again. Well done guys x

Waitress was awful and didn't know the menu at all. We asked three times what something was and how it was cooked. She even went to ask and came back without a clue still. Ended up with a bog standard tasteless curry. My fella had a balti; changed it as it wasn't what was ordered and then the final dish... More
